Twitter Social Media Challenge To Food Network’s All-Star Academy – Week 2

FoodNetwork’s competition show, All Star Academy, is a testimony to how well FoodNetwork’s Mentor Chefs can coach their teams of home cooks into the winner circle. The prize for the most talented home cook is $50k and bragging rights. But the end game could go beyond to lucrative endorsements that bring more fame & fortune. Perhaps even a FoodTV show. For the Mentor Chefs it’s of course bragging rights, an opportunity to further build their brand, perhaps another FoodNetwork show and of course the opportunity of endorsements.

These days part  of the value for a sponsor (and a TV Network)  is not just the win but the social media community that you bring with you. We thought it would be interesting to track the Twitter stats of the contestants and mentor chefs. You may be a great chef … but can you Tweet and build a digital community? Let’s have some fun … a Social Media Challenge!  Which contestant will get the most followers? We’ll track  week-by-week up to the final count after the last show. Maybe your mentor chef can lend some tweet support!

This week our Social Media Winner is Bill Joerger III @phillyfire4106 with a Follower Increase of 64! Bill is on #TeamMichael @chefsymon
